140 reunions and counting...
It's simple. And it works.
A person experiencing homelessness records a short message to a loved one, often with the help of a volunteer
or caseworker using one of our tools (below). Then, our network of 1,100+ digital detectives attempt to deliver it.

Miracle Messages is a volunteer-led nonprofit dedicated to reconnecting our homeless neighbors
with their loved ones... and us. We are on a mission to end relational poverty on our streets.
Our approach is rooted in three core objectives:
80% of found loved ones are happy to reunite. Yet the average length of time disconnected of our clients is 20 years. We can reunite them.
With their families, yes. But also with us: they are not problems to be solved, they are people to be loved. We generate stories that humanize: 500 articles, 100M views. We can shatter stigmas.
Frustrated? You are not alone. 7,500 local volunteers have signed up to record messages and locate loved ones. We can make a difference.
Everyone is someone's somebody.
What can I do?
We envision a world where everyone is nurtured by a social support system and
sense of belonging – a social home – whether or not they currently have stable housing.
